SOUTH KOREA: Samil Spinning inks Defender M fabric deal
Protective fabrics supplier TenCate has inked an agreement with Seoul-based Samil Spinning to expand the TenCate Defender M product line in the South Korean military and police market.
Samil already supplies non-FR (flame retardant) fabrics to the South Korean military and there is said to be high interest in expanding the line-up to include the inherently FR Defender M.
The vertially integrated firm operates state-of-the-art spinning operations as well as dyeing and finishing facilities and will, in some cases, make fabric under license from start to finish. It is also an established partner with Lenzing Fibers - whose Lenzing FR is a main component of Defender M.
The Defender M manufactured in South Korea will be sold and used there.
